Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day è maggiore successo del gruppo inglese dei Morcheeba, pubblicato nel 2000 come primo singolo estratto dal loro terzo album studio Fragments Of Freedom. Il brano, forse per il richiamo al detto italiano “Roma non fu costruita in un giorno” ebbe un ottimo riscontro proprio in Italia, dove raggiunse la settima posizione nelle classifiche. In Nuova Zelanda si guadagnò addirittura la seconda posizione.
Lo steso album Fragments Of Freedom però fu accolto tiepidamente dalla critica musicale, soprattutto per il fatto che segnava una rottura di sonorità rispetto ai due precedenti lavori che erano decisamente meno pop.

Pubblichiamo il testo con gli accordi per chitarra di questa canzone, molto semplice.
